    Deep lineup

    The Sox showed today how they potentially could have a deep lineup. They scored eight runs on a day where the top four batters go 2-for-15 with two runs scored and the bottom five go 6-for-18 with six runs scored and seven RBIs.

    They still have a long way to go. Salty had two hits and still is under .200. 
    Ellsbury went 1-for-4 with a home run and three RBIs but still is under .200. But there was a lot to like from the lineup today.

    Can't wait until Crawford and Youk heat up.

    I agree but we need to see consistency out of Salty.  I agree with Rice about Ellsbury... I hope this power surge doesn't result in a dip in batting average because this team will be at it's best with Ellsbury leading off and getting on base.

    This is what they're set up for.  Contributions from many throughout the season.

    Salty doesn't look like he's ever going to hit. One of them today was a decent hit but nothing special. The other was a seeing eye grounder. He looks like he will struggle to hit much over .200 all year. There is not a lot there to like yet. Hopefully he will eventually find his stroke.

    I agree. On other threads I've posted numerous times -- this offense isn't going anywhere consistently until Youk especially but also Crawford start hitting.

    Jury still is out on him. If everyone else starts hitting like they should and the pitching settles down, I can live with him for a couple of months to see if he can develop. Maybe a 2-for-4 day can get him going. Sometimes even the ugliest two-hit days can spark a guy.

    And at least he has a two-hit day, which is more than Youk can say.

    Is it true that your pizzeria in Worcester will only deliver to Yankee fans and that walk-ins who are Sox fans get broiled rat meat as a topping instead of pepperoni. George Romero is a troll in a Red Sox forum. Ignore him.

    His progression will be painfully slow due to the demands of the position.

    Give him time.

    Cleveland catcher, Carlos Santana had 117 RBI in the minors in 2008 and 97 more in 2009.  He entered the 2010 season as BA's 10th ranked prospect.  He came up in mid-season and had an .868 OPS in 46 games and 6 HRs in about 150 AB, a very good start to this major league career.  This season, the switch-hitter is mired in an 0-21 slump that has brought his bating average down to .191. 

    Baltimore catcher, Matt Weiters, was drafted as the fifth pick of the first round of the amateur draft in 2007.  He started playing in the minors in 2008, was BA's #1 prospect at the start of the 2009 season and reached the majors on May 29, 2009, after less than a season and a half in the minors.  Wieters had good .288//.340/.753 batting line in 96 games in his rookie year, but he started slow and a very strong finish, hitting .331/.385/.479 over his last 47 games.  At age 23, Weiters, a switch-hitter, seemed like he was going to live up to his billing very quickly.  However, in 2010, Weiters hit just .249/.319/.377 with a.695 OPS in 130 games and this year, he is off to an .194/.275/.333 start in his first 11 games.

    Many Sox fans, and perhaps fans of most teams, scream for the prospects to get in the majors.  Then these same fans get down on these same prospects if they stumble early on or do well for awhile and then struggle. These fans should take a closer look around baseball.  Many of the games' top prospects struggle early on their careers, often even after seemingly made the successful transition to the majors. I agree, give him time.

    Re: Deep lineup

    EXCELLENT POST PELO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    GM's earn their position because they understand the nature of the game - of it's difficulties and challenges at the highest level.

    The good ones don't make knee-jerk responses from one game or even one season.
    The term "sophomore jinx"exists for a reason. The league makes adjustments to rookie phenoms.
    It becomeS a matter of skill-set and experience as to whether/when the 2nd/3rd year player can respond effectively.

    Your point is backed by terrific data.

    I don't recall this many line-up alterations to begin a season.
    Rather interesting.
